Call for papers — GEBCO Symposium 2017

GEBCO Symposium web siteThe GEBCO Symposium is a one day event that brings together international experts to discuss innovative technologies and approaches that are pushing the boundaries of ocean floor mapping.

This year, the GEBCO Symosium will be held on 15th November 2017 in Busan, South Korea.

We are interested in having speakers share their work, innovation, research and ideas as it relates to bathymetry. We also showcase selected poster presentations.

Historically called the GEBCO Science Day, the name was changed in 2017 to reflect the growing desire to incorporate industry, map makers and emerging innovators pursuing change for ocean mapping. The Symposium is held as part of GEBCO's annual meetings.

The GEBCO Symposium is an excellent venue for exchanging ideas and growing new collaborations. Please come share your knowledge and join an international and cross-disciplinary team engaged in this exciting and fundamental work.

Any contributor to the symposium may attend GEBCO's Technical Sub-Committee meetings on Ocean Mapping (TSCOM) and Regional Undersea Mapping (SCRUM) on 13-14 November in Busan, South Korea.

Please submit a concise summary of your presentation to the symposium conveners, Timothy Kearns and Jaya Roperez here. Please note that you have to register for the event.

For further information please visit the Symposium web site or contact the organisers; Timothy Kearns and Jaya Roperez: symposium@gebco.net.
